    schema:description "Information professionals are under constant stress. Libraries are ushering in sweeping changes that involve the closing of branches and reference desks, wholesale dumping of print, disappearing space, and employment of non-professional staff to fill what have traditionally been the roles of librarians. Increasing workloads, constant interruptions, ceaseless change, continual downsizing, budget cuts, repetitive work, and the pressures of public services have caused burnout in many information professionals. Managing Burnout in the Workplace concentrates on the problem of burnout, what it is and how it differs from chronic stress, low morale, and depression. The book addresses burnout from psychological, legal, and human resources perspectives. The chapters also cover how burnout is defined, symptom recognition, managing and overcoming burnout and how to avoid career derailment while coping with burnout. Readership: Information professionals at all levels, and students in various disciplines including (but not limited to) library, information and archives studies, psychology, sociology, human resources, business, and gender studies courses.
